Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor, Willow Street

Conway police arrested the mother of a two-year-old boy Thursday afternoon after receiving reports of a crying child from neighbors.

Officers arrived on scene around 5:50 p.m. and could hear a child crying inside an apartment in the 200 block of Willow Street. Police said it took several minutes for the 24-year-old Conway woman to answer her door.

“While in the apartment, we witnessed the apartment to be very dirty with thrash all throughout the home,” an officer noted in the incident report. “There were cigarette butts all over the living room, exposed electrical outlets, trash on the kitchen counters and floor, and beer cans on the floor of the bedroom.”

The mother told police she took two of her kids — ages five and six — to school, came home, drank beer, fell asleep and did not hear her two-year-old crying.

“She did not state how much she had drank, but there were two 24 oz. cans of beer by her bed,” the police report states.

The mother also informed officers she was up late the previous night partying with friends in her home. Police said there were two children in the home, the two-year-old boy and a girl, whose age was not provided in the report.

Officers said the crying two-year-old had no clothing and was running around the home. Police took the mother into custody on a fugitive warrant out of Maumelle Police Department and transported her to the Faulkner County jail.

The children were left in the custody of the woman’s father, and the Department of Human Services was notified.

•Disorderly conduct, Hairston Avenue.

Police responded to reports of disorderly conduct around 4:52 p.m. Thursday in the 1700 block of Hairston Avenue.

Officers made contact with a 64-year-old Conway man who appeared to be “very intoxicated” and displayed droopy eyes, slurred speech and difficulty standing. Witnesses said the man yelled loudly, used vulgar language and became threatening.

Police made contact with the housing manager and advised him of the warrants process. No arrests were made, according to the police report.

•Vehicle breaking or entering, Elsinger Boulevard.

A Bauxite man says more than $600 in tools was stolen from his company vehicle while he shopped at the Conway Commons Thursday afternoon.

Officers arrived on scene in the 700 block of Elsinger Boulevard around 1:13 p.m.

The 24-year-old complainant said he went inside a store to shop and returned to his truck approximately 30 minutes later. The man drove to Little Rock and attempted to start a job when he realized the tools had been stolen.

Police said no forced entry was used, because the tool box was unlocked.

•Theft of property, College Avenue.

Two Conway women say their daughters’ phones were stolen Wednesday afternoon while at the McGee Center.

Officers arrived on scene in the 3800 block of College Avenue around 7:01 p.m.

The mothers said the two were playing ball and had used their phones, but set them on the bleachers. The phones were discovered missing sometime after 5:30 p.m.

Each phone was valued at $500 in the police report.
